Most of us have been there, and we all agree that it is not a fun experience. Breaking up is hard, more so if you’ve been together for a long time. Breakups cause change and change is hard to handle sometimes. But change can be good, and a breakup can be a great way to start anew.
Yes, you need time to let out all of your emotions and cry it out. But it doesn’t always have to be that way. There is a reason why you broke up and I believe, as long as you don’t get stuck, someone better will come along. Moving on is a process that is different for each one. There is no right amount of time to say that you have moved on. However, it is also true that how quickly you move on depends on what you do after your breakup.
Let’s have a look at the top 10 things we believe you should do to help you move on.
Give yourself a small pity party.
As we agreed, breakups are hard, and it will be even harder if we just keep our emotions in. The first step to many things is to let it all out so you can start fresh. Grab your closest friends and let your emotions out.
Delete and Block
With the abundance of social media platforms to remind you and show you the life of your ex, this is the single most important next step. Block and Delete him from your social media. Seeing his photos and his posts will never help you move on. It will only trigger sad emotions and will get you back in the hole. Delete and Block!
Create a Playlist that will Empower You
Music is a powerful thing. The music we listen to impacts our lives in ways we never thought it would. So, come up with a great empowering playlist to help you get in the mood and start the process of moving on. Demi Lovato, Taylor Swift, or Pink are some of the best ones to listen to.
Replace, Remove Photos, and Clean your room!
So, you’ve silenced him digitally. It’s time to do it physically too. With good music in the background, go to work and remove all pictures of him and replace it with new ones. It’s going to be hard for sure, but it has to be done. You don’t need to burn them or do something dramatic, at least just put them away, out of your sight. Change your sheets, get new pillows, and put all the stuffed animals away. Anything that reminds you of him has to go. For now, remove and replace anything that will trigger your emotions about your ex.
It’s time for a new Hairdo!
I don’t really mean just your hair, but it’s a good start. Have it dyed, change the cut, try something new, or just get a new look! This will help you in your journey of moving on and starting fresh. Be a new you.
Forgive and Forget
This is probably the single most difficult thing to do and a lot of people will not agree However, you can’t be carrying that baggage all your life. Yes, spend time with your closest friends and family and pour your heart out. But once that’s done, you need to let it go! You can’ start new if you have chains tying you down.
Do these and you’ll be on your way to a new you!
